Sorry for noob question.

May I know what is the principle of controlling RGB LED strips?
What kind of signal does the 4 wires receive from the controller?
Digital? Analogue? Square Wave?
How is the colour and intensity varied?
Is the LED strip itself a smart device or passive?

Can this controller work with all types of 12V RGB LED strips?
Can any controller with any type of 12V RGB strip?

Thanks!

Sorry for noob question.
-Ok

May I know what is the principle of controlling RGB LED strips?
-For Fun(???)
What kind of signal does the 4 wires receive from the controller?
Digital? Analogue? Square Wave?
-Digital, as it is all digital tech.
How is the colour and intensity varied?
-Voltage I assume, it could just be a different bit battern being tansfered via the cables.
Is the LED strip itself a smart device or passive?
-I image it is passive, it is just a few LEDs, resistors (maybe) and wires.

Can this controller work with all types of 12V RGB LED strips?
Can any controller with any type of 12V RGB strip?

Thanks!
-anytime

Can we still pick one of these up somehow?

12 V? Looks like it'd be awesome for a car...

12V works as a 4 channel RGB controller for LED lighting. The strips are from ElmentalLED.com

business cared SIZED LED control circuit board demo

Me neither. I'd definitely change the name.

What is a good name, I want it to make sense and people to have an idea what it will be about. I am open to suggestions to change the name. Thanks

Maybe something along the lines of: Business Card Sized LED (RGB) Controller - RGB being optional.
